As if he is not tackling enough wasteful spending by the City, today Council member Christopher Smitherman hosts a free tour of the vacant and unused $42 million Riverfront Transit Center. It is a massive, cavernous, gold-plated boondoggle planned by the same engineers that are soaking the City for Streetcar planning -- Parsons Brinckerhoff.
You really have to see it to believe it.
The bus for the tour leaves City Hall at 3 PM today. Call Smitherman's office at 352-3464 to join the tour. Take your cell phone camera with you and tweet, FB and blog the photos from the site. We must shine the light of truth on this amazing waste of money.
